For the Chicken Drumsticks:

  • – 8 chicken drumsticks
  • – 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • – 2 large eggs
  • – 2 cups breadcrumbs
  • – 1 teaspoon paprika
  • – 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • – 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • – Salt and pepper to taste

    For the Dipping Sauce (Optional):

  • – 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • – 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • – 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • – 1 teaspoon honey
  • – 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • – Salt and pepper to taste


    1️⃣ Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Place a wire rack on a baking sheet and set it aside. This will be used for baking the drumsticks after frying.

    2️⃣ In a shallow bowl, combine the flour with a pinch of salt and pepper. In another bowl, beat the eggs.

    3️⃣ In a third bowl, mix the breadcrumbs with paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.

    4️⃣ Take a chicken drumstick and coat it in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.

    5️⃣ Dip the floured drumstick into the beaten eggs, ensuring it’s well coated.

    6️⃣ Roll the drumstick in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to make sure the crumbs adhere.

    7️⃣ Place the coated drumstick on a plate, and repeat this process for all the drumsticks.

    8️⃣ In a large skillet, heat about 1 inch of cooking oil over medium-high heat.

    9️⃣ Carefully add the breaded drumsticks to the hot oil. Cook for about 5-7 minutes per side or until they are golden brown and crispy. Ensure the chicken is cooked through; it should have an internal temperature of 165°F (75°C).

    🔟 Transfer the fried drumsticks to the prepared wire rack on the baking sheet to drain any excess oil.

    1️⃣1️⃣ Place the baked drumsticks in the preheated oven for an additional 10-15 minutes to ensure they are fully cooked and to keep them warm.

    1️⃣2️⃣ While the chicken is baking, you can prepare a dipping sauce by combining mayonnaise, ketchup, Dijon mustard, honey, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Mix well.

    1️⃣3️⃣ Serve your Crunchy Crumbed Chicken Drumsticks hot with the optional dipping sauce and your favorite sides.
